Low CD36 and LOX-1 Levels and CD36 Gene Subexpression Are Associated with Metabolic Dysregulation in Older Individuals with Abdominal Obesity
Metabolic and adiposity indexes in study group. Subjects without abdominal obesity: ; subjects with abdominal obesity: . Data are presented as mean ± SD. (a) and (b) Individuals <30 years old: Mann-Whitney test comparing the groups with abdominal obesity versus individuals without abdominal obesity. (c) and (d) Individuals ≥30 years old with abdominal obesity versus individuals without abdominal obesity. TC: total cholesterol; HDLc, LDLc, and VLDLc: high density lipoprotein cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, and very low density lipoprotein cholesterol, respectively; Apo: apolipoprotein; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance; BMI: body mass index; BFR: body fat ratio; WHtR: waist-to-height ratio; CI: conicity index; AVI: abdominal volume index; VAI: visceral adipose index.
